This book and the associated videos look at the issue that concerns teachers most - that is, what it means to be an effective teacher. Five secondary school teachers have been filmed and analysed using recent research findings. This helps to make clear the combination of teacher skills and professional characteristics needed to produce effective teching. This resource can be used by: - teachers as a mechanism for discussion during school INSET concerning classroom management; - individual teachers at home who may wish to reveiw their own approach to teaching; - ITT students who may wish to supplement their own classroom observation with examples of effective teachers in other schools; - training colleges who wish to give their students examples of effective teachers and use this as a means of discussion; - teachers who are reflecting on their teaching practice as they approach their Threshold Application; - teachers who have gone through the Threshold and wish to move on to the next stage of Performance Management In each case, the extensive manual outlines each of the individual teacher's intentions and aspirations and then allows you to compare this with some 30 minutes of video focusing on their classroom practice. Finally, these two impressions are compared with the designated features of effective teaching and learning as outlined in the Hay McBer report.

We are all different. Every child in every class in every school in the land is different. And yet we have a 'one size fits all' curriculum that everyone must follow. How can we best deal with this apparent anomaly, in order to provide meaningful learning experiences for all students? Teachers are now discouraged from grouping children according to abilities - inclusion is the buzzword. So radical solutions are needed to help all children learn within a group, whatever their personal and academic needs, and whatever their social background. This book analyses the issues surrounding the world of difference we see in schools today. It unpacks the elements of diversity - personality, intelligence, styles of learning and communicating, social class, gender, race, culture, ethnicity, learning difficulties, disabilities, views and values - and suggests practical strategies to make teachers' lives easier and their students' study less stressful. All children need personal skills, particularly communication and co-operation skills, in order to cope with learning within their own context and at their own level. This book considers how such key skills emerge from the interaction of physical, mental, emotional and social development, and suggests initiatives such as 'The Critical Skills Programme' and the 'Communication Opportunity Group Scheme' to give students from every background more chances to talk, think, express feelings and share views. A comprehensive overview of common learning difficulties and medical conditions in children is also provided - including characteristics of each condition, classroom organization tips, and contact details of relevant support groups - with the aim of helping educators further develop their management of individuals and diverse groups. If you have an interest in making education work - whether you are a teacher, teaching assistant, school counsellor, social worker, therapist, psychologist or other educator - 'A World of Difference' is for you.
